Guernsey

Guernsey's financial services industry has developed at a considerable rate over the past 50 years and the jurisdiction is recognised as a global centre of expertise for banking, investment funds, insurance and private client services.

The Island has robust administrative, legal and regulatory infrastructures and a commitment to meeting the highest standards on tax transparency and exchange of information. In 2016 the FATF confirmed that Guernsey is compliant or largely compliant with 48/49 of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations in respect to anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism.

Guernsey has an AA-credit rating from Standard & Poor's, representing the island's very strong capacity to meet its financial commitments.

Guernsey's tax neutrality facilitates substantial investment to and from the UK and Europe - there are no capital gains taxes or death or inheritance taxes in Guernsey.
